Soggy Saturday

Well it was earlier on. DB cut the front grass and I planted a couple of plants that were waiting to go in and also re-potted the acer I got from Morrison a few weeks ago.

There were plants to go in the back, but I ran out of time, so I have just put them in their pots where I am going to put them. It has started to brighten up, maybe tomorrow we will get the sun they promised for today.

Nothing much going on today, DB and his partner won their match yesterday so they are in the semi final. If he gets to the final I guess I will have to go and watch. I usually take some hand sewing with me or a book.

We have a mobile library which comes to the village once a month. We used to use it when we lived in Asfordby and know the driver quite well. It stops at the end of our cul de sac. Only 3 people use it here, DB and myself and a lady who lives round the corner. There are one or two who use it when it stops at the school. It is a very useful asset, I wish more of the villagers would use it, but I guess its a sign of the times, people do not seem to read as much. We are both lost if we do not have something to read, especially before we settle down to sleep.

We do have books in the house, ones we never mind reading again and again. I have a series of books by an American Author, Jennifer Chiaverini, all the books are based around quilting. I was first introduced to them by a quilting friend in Scotland, she lent me a book, I was hooked and over time have bought all the book in the series. We could get some of them in the Scottish Library but they do not have them down here. Jennifer has now moved on and writes about popular historical figures in American History.

DB has gone for his siesta, I am just going to check a couple of things on the web and I will be settling down with a book for an hour.

Breakfast fry up for supper tonight, we very rarely have a fried breakfast, so this is a treat for DB, he loves his bacon and eggs, I have some beans and tomato's to use up and I guess a piece of fried bread will find its way onto his plate. I bought bananas on Thursday so banana something for dessert.
